Carl and Sheryl were the Gold Standard of the hobby.
We were lucky to see that in our lifetime.
Sad, sad loss.

Well, itís gone and at the BIN price, which was not really that bad a price for the kit that was being sold.

An original MiniMax Hustler kit would run somewhere between $250-$400. And while the Semroc Hustler was not exactly like an original, it still is a nice kit with some large, expensive balsa pieces in it that would be VERY pricey now if that kit were still being offered.

Yes, I *really* do miss Carl and Sheryl. Wonderful company and wonderful people.
